Crafty Little Fairies DT Card

Hello everyone I'm here today with my DT card for Crafty Little Fairies, which I might add is late:0(
Best get on then.
Now as from today CLF is going monthly so that gives you so much more time to enter our challenges. All have the girlies have joined together so there will be lots more inspiration. Whats more is there will also be more prizes yayyyyyyyyy.... Ok so our first monthly challenge is..............
...........perfect for this time of year when we are all starting to do our gardens, well if this rotten weather would go away :0(
I have gone with the cutest bear in the world, I wish he was standing in my garden........he's such a cutie ;0)

The dies I have used are Marianne 'Anja's Border LRO300', Marianne 'Creatables Corner' die, Marianne 'Leaves' die & the frame the image is on is a Joy Crafts die.

The lace is from my stash & the seam binding is from LLC. I've also added scalloped pearls.

The uber cute image is of course James Bear & this one is 'James Daisy' from LOTV of course. I coloured him ages ago with copics & tried a different colouring technique, its took me til now to decide if I liked it lol.
I added 'Stardust Stickles' to the flowers & butterflies.

The sentiment is from LOTV & its the 'Vintage Labels' I inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink.

The gorgeous papers are Graphic 45 'Secret Garden' I distressed & inked the edges with 'Pumice Stone' & then machine sewn them all. The little tag is also from the same papers. The middle white flower is a Kaisercraft Paper Bloom & the others are Prima. The pin is from my stash.

Well thats it form me but please pop on over to see my super duper teamies creations, they are sooooooo gorgeous!!!!!!!

I have some things going on behind the scenes at the mo which is taking up quite a bit of my time. I cant explain yet but I will soon hopefully once some things are sorted ;0)

Thank you so much for your continued support & I'm soooooooo sorry I'm such a bad blogger at the mo but I will make it up to you ;0)

Well thats it from me I have the dreaded opticians this afternoon which I'm really nervous about. You have to understand though I have a MAHOOSIVE phobia when it comes to eyes, I cant stand anyone going near mine & I've only ever been for one eye test in my whole life, the first & last one was 6 years ago :0(
Wish this baby good luck lol.

True Love & A Happy Birthday

Hello everyone how are you all? I am sorry I've been MIA again these headaches are kinda ruling my life at the minute, so screen use has been a no-no but I thought I would try do a quick post with a card I made a few weeks ago. I'm at the opticians tomorrow for an eye test, so will see if that is the cause.

Anyhoo's here is a card I made weeks ago with a LOTV stamp, the image had been coloured up beginning of the year I think it was.
I love this image, its so sweet. It is called 'Close Your Eyes' by LOTV of course. I went to the website to get the link for this stamp..............OMW have you seen the new stamps that are getting released.......oohhh I'm swooning.................

The gorgeous 'Tulle Trim' & 'Lace' are from Live & Love Crafts.

The papers are from 2 Melissa Frances pads, the strip along the top I cut from one pad & fussy cut the scallops & layered it up. The added a strip of Pearls which were from WOC I think. 

The flowers are a mixture of Prima & the little pearls on the lace are also Prima.

I coloured the image with Distress Ink markers. The 'sentiment tag' is from LOTV.

Well thats it from me I will try to catch up with you as soon as I can. 
Its my youngest son Jake's birthday today he is 18............I wish I could freeze moments in time or go back to when he was little, it goes way too fast. My baby is now officially a young man, although he will always be my baby, all my kiddo's will ;0)

Happy Birthday Jake son!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs to you all mmwah.
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxx
